Retired Captains Can Now Play Star Trek Online For Free

Players with a lapsed subscription to Cryptic's Star Trek Online can come back an play the game at no cost today as part of the free-to-play early start program. Everyone else can play for free come January 17.


    Yes, got the email about this. Of course there is a difference between "can play the game free" and "would go back to the game if they paid me".

      +1 to this. Found this game to be broken, boring and absolutely pointless.

        most games and MMO's have no point, this game isn't broken or boring, it may just not be your game.

    I wa fully planning to do this until I played my first beta of SWTOR, the ony thing that could possibly tempt me to try STO again is the space combat but then I still have Starfleet Command III somewhere which did space combat better...

    booorrriinngg.. give me SWTOR any day

    I might give this a try when it goes free to play. Seems a shame not to, considering I'm a bit of a Trek fan. Might as well enjoy it before it's gone.

    Free to play huh, I wonder what the people who bought the lifetime subscription got compensated with? If anything?

    I got the email and decided to give Captain Aerin and the crew of the Bebop another go at the cosmos...

    Free is a great price, and I might as well play this every once in awhile before I eventually ruin it for myself by playing the Old Republic at some point in the future (after I finally upgrade my compy)

    To Boldly Go Where I Went Before Over A Year Ago But Decided It Wasn't Worth The Investment...

    I gave the F2P on this a shot the other night during extended SWToR maintenance..

    They've improved quite a few things and I actually enjoyed it when doing some of the group content with friends.. I'm thinking I have something to play now when SWToR servers are down each week ;p
